Fresh Meat

Series 1 - Episode 6

Radio Times
Review by:
David Butcher

Anyone who has seen E4’s Made in Chelsea may be shocked by how much the posh young bucks of real life resemble Fresh Meat’s resident toff, JP. That’s partly why Jack Whitehall’s performance is so sharp – it seems like a big, braying caricature, but maybe it isn’t at all.

There’s a change of gear for him tonight when JP has to show some real, heartfelt emotion – and he’s not the only one. It’s the darkest, least larky episode so far.

About this programme

6/8. A family crisis prompts JP to take his first acid trip, while Vod is forced to question her own behaviour after an overdose - which provides rich pickings for would-be journalist Kingsley, who is looking for a good story for the student paper. Meanwhile, Josie hits an all-time low and accepts a marriage proposal from boyfriend Dave.
